You can see it off in the distance here


And here's my trip distance, 124.8nm from Freeport, with 5nm to go. So about 130nm out of Freeport

You went to Hoover on a boat with a bow mounted trolling motor? Impressive. How did the power pole work out there?

Have you ever tried it?

Ignorance is bliss.

You know they are putting bow mounted trolling motors on 31’ cc now? Boat looks like a deep sided deep bee to me. I’d do it. I used to fish auger in my sailfish 2660 cc. Even first passed a blue right in front of No Compromise while he was live baiting.

It's a 28' McKee. And an 84" Rhodan, 120#.
The more people that think it's silly, the better...because it will make bottom fishing unfair.

For the record, they put them on 37' & 42' Freeman Cats. Trolling motors aren't just for bass and bay boats anymore. Give it 2-4 years, and you'll see builders offering them as a factory rigged option.
